Cary-based Fontaine Landscaping becomes the third LandOpt contractor in the state.

| April 16, 2012

PITTSBURGH – Fontaine Landscaping has joined the LandOpt Contractor Network, bringing the total number of LandOpt Contractors in the state of North Carolina to three.

Founded in 1996 by owners Kevin and Dana Fontaine, Cary-based Fontaine Landscaping provides grounds management, lawn care and landscape enhancement. As a full-service landscape provider, the company’s focus is on maintenance services within both the residential and commercial markets, inclusive of private homes, multi-family units, and H.O.A. sites. The prospect of streamlining their business processes via the LandOpt System and tools is what appealed most to The Fontaines about LandOpt, as well as the ability to adopt a more formalized business planning and budgeting process, and network with other LandOpt Contractors, LandOpt said.

The opportunity to introduce well-defined roles was important to the duo as well. “Clearly defined roles within the business will definitely get everyone on the same page, so to speak,” noted Kevin. “Each person on the team will not only know his/her own responsibilities, but will clearly see where they fit in the overall picture of service delivery. This will allow us to better track productivity and set both individual and team goals and milestones against which we can measure progress.”

Fontaine Landscaping will become the third LandOpt Contractor in North Carolina, joining Shallotte-based Carolina Creations Landscapes and Swansboro-based H&H Landscaping and Lawn Care. LandOpt has seen steady growth over the past six months, adding locations that span the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions of the country.
